An ugly 80s dress (see the last two pictures) became a summer playsuit.
The pattern itself was pretty straightforward, but I had trouble getting all of the pieces on the fabric of the dress and this led to a few head-scratching (and hair-pulling) moments.
I added shoulder straps (and two black buttons) to the strapless pattern. Oh, and I shortened the legs a lot, too, of course!
The whole story is on my blog.
